now this is a special place! a volcanic region, sort of in the middle of Turkey, and land has been sculptured over the years by layers of fallen volcanic ash and rock, and valleys where the waters have eroded it. truely an amazing place, and I think my favorite part of Turkey that I got to see. I also met some really cool people there which made it even better so I went out on a high note for sure. sorry my photos are looking pretty average these days too, my camera is starting to die on me and it's hard work to get a decent photo out of it these days. hopefully it'll last till Christmas when Santaruss might get me a new one

Everyone else puts photos of flowers on their blogs so I started to feel left out.

this shaft is 37m deep, and they used it to ciculate air through the city, lower food and supplies down, and lift water up to the differant levels
